Is Simon Cowell Lining Up A New Face For Xtra Factor?

Roman Kemp in line for Xtra Factor job

Reports today suggest Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp’s son Roman is being lined up to front The Xtra Factor.

The Capital FM DJ is seen as a future hotshot by show boss Simon Cowell and has been in talks with ITV — casting doubt on the future of current hosts Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom.

Roman interviewed Simon last year and impressed him. Roman also has a list of celebrity friends including Justin Bieber.

When asked if he was in talks to present The X Factor’s ITV2 spin-off, he told by The Sun: “Yeah. Obviously we have a lot of talks about it. We’ve had a lot of talks in the past year about Xtra Factor so we’ll see."

“For me, that’s the next step.” Adding: “It’s nice to know these big shows I look up to are watching and thinking about putting me in that show. Having companies like ITV ask if you’re interested in doing these types of shows, like Xtra Factor, it’s nice, it’s really nice.”

Where will this leave Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom? We enjoyed the pair fronting the spin-off show last year. Let us know what you think.
